The report presents forecasts for energy harvesters for 2018 through 2023, with a base year of 2017, on a volume and value basis. Market forecasts in terms of value are presented in U.S. dollars, while forecasts in terms of volume are presented in thousands of units. Thousands was selected as a denomination because shipment volumes for some categories would otherwise appear to be insignificant. It is important to note that energy harvesters can power wireless sensor nodes, which will ship by the billions in the future. Energy harvesters will power several additional device categories that will not be as prolific in number as wireless nodes, but which will experience tremendous growth as well.
Energy harvesting for the purposes of this report is restricted to non-grid-connected applications and excludes power plants that use sources such as solar, wind and hydroelectric.
The forecasts are further broken down by energy source, end application and region. The report covers the following energy sources:
- Solar and photovoltaic.
- Vibration, displacement and mechanical (including biomechanical and electrostatic), also occasionally referred to simply as mechanical.
- Radiation and electromagnetic.
End-use application categories include:
- Building, construction and home automation.
- Energy exploration, generation and distribution.
- Environment and agriculture.
- Industrial and automotive.
- Retail and logistics.
The regional breakdown focuses on the following regions:
- The Americas.
- Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
- Asia-Pacific (APAC).
The Summary and Highlights chapter provides a regional breakdown of the market value for energy harvesters. The Market Introduction chapter introduces energy harvesting and its definition, history, drivers and challenges. It also provides an overview of the larger market and breaks it down by the key characteristics of principal energy sources and application categories.
The Market Breakdown by Energy Source chapter and the Market Breakdown by Application chapter provide an in-depth picture of energy harvester business opportunities. The energy harvester market, in terms of both value and volume, is broken down by energy source and then by application category. In turn, the market for each energy source is broken down by end-use application category. The market for each application category is then broken down by energy source and by region.
The Competitive Landscape chapter and the Company Profiles chapter identify the major categories of stakeholders involved in the development and commercialization of energy harvester technology. The Patent Analysis chapter covers innovations that impact energy harvesters. Patents are categorized by energy sources and areas of value, and are analyzed based on years of issue, assignee countries, and assignee organizations.
